According to their website Phanteks have been in the cooling business for 20 years, though obviously not the enthusiast market as the PH-TC14PE seems to be the first cooler to undergo a trip through the review circuit.  It is one to keep an eye on as the reviews have been quite positive.  It is a dual tower design which allows the use of two 140mm fans, which are included with the heatsink.  It weighs in at 1250g when the two fans are attached and stands 159mm x 140mm x 171mm so you will not be sticking this into an mATX case but it is shorter than some competitors models.  OCC was blown away by the effective performance of this air cooler and were also impressed at the four available colours of heatsink and matching fans.


"When the results from the first test I ran (Overclocked Load) started to take shape, I could only describe the look on my face as "WOW". In disbelief of these numbers demolishing the NH-D14, I grabbed my infrared thermometer and checked the floor next to the computer (to verify ambient temperature) — it was right where it was supposed to be. I looked back at the RealTemp display and stared at the temperatures for the next few minutes (after already running for 45 minutes), and they didn't budge. This cooler has thrown up some astounding results and has blown me away."

Over at eTechnix you can catch a review of two cooler from Phanteks, who have just entered the enthusiast cooling market.  They sport some impressive acronyms like P.A.T.S (Physical Anti-oxidant Thermal Shield) and C.P.S.C (Cold Plasma Spraying Coating) to describe their coolers and their fans have UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) bearings.  Part of that alphabet soup means that the coolers can come in a variety of colours apart from black or bare metal.  Their Phanteks PH-F140TS is a 140mm fan sold separately which can be mounted with noise reducing screws or attached to a PCI slot with the included adapter.  The PH-TC14PE is a 1250g dual tower heatsink that can use up to three of the 140mm fans and provides some very competitive cooling.  Phanteks seems to be a name we will be hearing more about and seeing near the top of cooling shoot outs with some of the other big name coolers.


"Today we will be reviewing the 140mm Phanteks PH-F140TS fan. The 9 bladed F140TS is designed for use with CPU coolers and as a case fan. It uses an UFB (Updraft Floating Balance) bearing which should ensure low noise and a healthy lifespan hence the low 19dbA acoustic rating and greater than 150,000 hours MTBF. Offering a rated speed of 1200RPM (+/- 10%) and whopping 78.1 CFM of airflow, this is one fan that we definitely are keen to observe in action. The fan comes in 4 different colours; red, blue, orange and white guaranteeing compatibility with every type of case and colour scheme."
